This past weekend was our 2nd annual car show and fundraiser! Take a look.
ICARE Conference - Day One
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that gives people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it does build mental health literacy, helping the public identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness.
The Office of Community Liaison prepared some 250 gift bags at the Operation Blue Santa Warehouse for participants of the 2016 ICARE Conference, which begins on August 2!
This Week at Youth Camp
Campers got to interact with the Travis County Underage Drinking Program, AISD's Social and Emotional Learning Team, Frost Bank, Austin's Municipal Court Chief Prosecutor, the nonprofit Share Art Heal and Life Works.
Here are two video photo montages - the first encapsulates our time spent with AISD's Social and Emotional Learning Team, and the second gives the viewer a look at our time spent with Jet Baker of Share Art Heal.
Memorial for Fort Hood Fallen
In preparation for next week's visit to Fort Hood, Campers also prepared memorial crosses in remembrance of the nine fallen soldiers who died in a flash flood during a convoy training exercise June 2.
Back Packs for the Fall
Campers at the OCL Youth Summer Camp spent Friday morning building school back packs for themselves when they return to school in the fall.
